When Did He Decide To Not Go To WWE Crown Jewel & Why?

Scrutiny continues to surround WWE's controversial Crown Jewel event this Friday in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia.

During the Monday night show, onscreen general manager Baron Corbin informed Bobby Lashley he would be replacing Cena in the World Cup tournament.

The moral shortcomings of the Saudis have been well-documented in recent weeks, but only Bryan and John Cena have taken a stance against Crown Jewel.

It was reported in the days leading up to the decision that WWE was "frantically" searching for a new Crown Jewel location but it appears they were working on several back-up plans.

A post on the centre's website - which appears to have been taken down - had noted that Tala might have been with Rotana. Meanwhile, the office of Chief Medical Examiner has not yet determined cause of death.

Big-name wrestlers such as Daniel Bryan and John Cena have refused to attend following the murder of journalist Jamal Khashoggi at the Saudi embassy in Turkey.

The star performed in WWE's the Greatest Royal Rumble, which took place in Saudi Arabia in April.

Following the termination of his contract, Hogan was also removed from the WWE Hall of Fame but he was officially reinstated in the summer and was invited backstage to the "Extreme Rules" pay-per-view in July where he offered an apology to the locker room for his words. I will be covering the event live beginning with the Kickoff show. "And I also want to say once again, thank all of you for allowing me to be part of something so special".

At this point, WWE probably just wants to get through this week. Hogan tipped off his role at Crown Jewel and hinted at a potential return to WrestleMania recently in an interview with the Orlando Sentinel.

But according to the Cook Report , which analyzes individual House races, the Democrats only have a net 16-seat polling advantage. A Reuters analysis of a trio of political forecasting groups showed the picture in the House brightening for Democrats.

WWE has operated in the Middle East for almost 20 years and has developed a sizeable and dedicated fan base.

It sounds like Vince was still determined to keep Crown Jewel in the Kingdom, even if they weren't able to host it this week as planned.

It was not the current controversy over Khashoggi that evidently made him make his decision, although one would think it made him feel more strongly that his decision wasn't wrong.
